Extreme morning sickness warning from two charities

By Aine Fox

A significant number of women who suffer from a type of severe morning sickness experienced by the Duchess of Cambridge are expected to either put up with it or have an abortion, a report has claimed.

Around 10,000 women are thought to suffer with hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) - a complication of pregnancy which can result in extreme nausea and vomiting - each year but many are not offered the entire range of treatments, two charities warned.

In their joint report entitled "I could not survive another day", the British Pregnancy Advisory Service and Pregnancy Sickness Support said research had shown 10% of sufferers decide to terminate their pregnancy as a result.
